    What not do you think I should do next?

    What? No rabbit story to go with it :-D

    I love the bowline! I remember learning it in scouts and trying to tie it underwater during various SCUBA certifications. Tying knots underwater is harder than you'd think.

    This is a really, really, REALLY handy knot, and knot many people know how to tie it. Thanks for helping educate people in the world of knots, and good job making it clear and concise!
